Symbol: A crooked-hafted war pick
Garb: Greasy leather clothing with golden necklaces.
Favored Weapons: Pick
Form of Worship and Holidays: King Gobb’s followers revel in blood sacrifice, and also fling gold into forge fires as a tribute to their god. His rites are held on the Night of Goblins (Midsummer), and on moonless nights. Feasts and overeating are also common forms of worship.
Completely hairless, King Gobb manifests as a grossly fat, horned goblin.
He wields a great double-handed warpick, and is also known for his stealth and deceptiveness. A master of disguise, it is said that King Gobb once lay down and impersonated a mountain in order to avoid the wrath of another god he had defeated in a drinking match. He is also said to have fathered the goblin pantheon and is held first above all other goblin gods. Even the hobgoblins still offer sacrifices to him for fear of his wicked wrath.
King Gobb hates and is mortal enemy of dwarves and gnomes. He wears a necklace made from the skulls of a hundred dwarven kings, and earrings crafted from the skeletons of gnomes. In battle, he dresses in a filthy coat of scale mail caked in crusted blood and gore of the dwarves and gnomes he has slain but which barely covers his immense gut.
